... do we officially have to finalize the version of Etoys that will
be used on the first mass-produced machines (see Kim Q's message below).
The most critical issue we still have is translations. We need to get
Pango support in ASAP - is this week realistic? And, support adding
translations without rebuilding the image.
The other big thing is sharing - I'll work on the lower level
mechanics, and someone should investigate the feasibility of our
"shared playfield" idea.

> FRS code freeze is only 3 weeks from today.
